Yet the Escape was easily Canada’s top-selling SUV/crossover in September, a result we’ve become more than accustomed to seeing. The second-ranked Toyota RAV4 finished September 643 units back and, through the first three quarters of 2015, trails the Ford by an insurmountable 5290 sales. 

The Escape and RAV4 weren’t alone in their declines in September. Even among the most popular utility vehicles in Canada, in a healthy market that increasingly favours SUVs and crossovers, six of the 19 vehicles which could have reported year-over-year declines did so. That group of seven included the Dodge Journey and GMC Terrain, which slid 20% and 25%, respectively.

But improved volume is the order of the day. Honda CR-V volume increased by 786 units. The Jeep Cherokee reported a 31% jump compared with September 2014. Honda Pilot volume nearly doubled. The new Hyundai Tucson was up 37%.
